first_img Tottenham got a late penalty decision in the FA Cup against Leicester Tottenham got out of jail against Leicester as a controversial late penalty decision allowed Harry Kane to equalise in an FA Cup third round tie at White Hart Lane.The Foxes had come from behind to lead 2-1 with minutes remaining, only for Kane to score from the spot after referee Richard Madley punished Nathan Dyer for a handball.It’s 25 years since Tottenham last won the FA Cup, which at that time was an all-time record eighth success in the tournament.Since then, their great rivals Arsenal have won the trophy seven times to take their tally to a new all-time best of 12 FA Cup final victories.And with the Gunners aiming to seal a hat-trick of FA Cups this season, as well as the Premier League title, while Tottenham have also been looking like a much improved side, the North London rivalry looks set to become even fiercer.It was no surprise, therefore, to see Arsenal fans commenting on Tottenham’s FA Cup drama… and taking the mick! 1last_img
